Trafalgar Law, the nation’s oldest civil rights law, is the subject of a lawsuit filed by a 17-year-old girl who says she suffered a sexual assault in the military academy at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.
The lawsuit alleges that in 2015, an Army recruit named Jessica Simpson was subjected to a “sexual assault” by a senior enlisted soldier who then raped her.
Simpson filed a complaint with the Army in 2016, but her complaint was not substantiated and her case was never heard in court.
In 2018, Simpson’s attorney, Michael Oleszewski, filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit against the Army.
Oleszykowski says he is seeking unspecified damages for the loss of his client’s career.
Simpson’s mother, Kimberly, told CBC News her daughter’s case is important to her son’s legal case against the U.K. and the U,S.
The military said it is investigating the allegations, which it has not publicly addressed.
Simpson is now in high school.
The Army said Simpson and her parents did not report her assault until after it happened and that the case has been closed.
Simpson did not respond to a request for comment.
Simpson alleges that the alleged attack occurred in March 2015 at Fort Lewis, Wash., while Simpson was assigned to a female unit.
Simpson was raped at the academy by a fellow female member, who was later relieved of duty and given a demotion, according to her lawsuit.
Simpson has not identified the alleged attacker.
Simpson, who is a U.N. refugee, is suing the U: The U.A.E., the U of A, and the Army for sexual assault and gender-based discrimination and defamation.
Simpson claims that she was subjected, without her consent, to sexual assault, forced to have oral sex, and sexually assaulted while being used as a sex slave in the army.
She claims she was repeatedly raped and sexually abused by multiple officers, including the commanding officer and the chief of staff, according of the lawsuit.
The U of B did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the lawsuit, which was filed in February 2018.
Simpson also alleged that she has suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder since her alleged assault.
The sexual assault she alleges occurred on or about April 19, 2016, occurred at a unit conference room, she claims.
The suit alleges that Simpson was “severely sexually assaulted” by the other recruits and that they forced her to perform oral sex on them.
Simpson and several other girls said in the suit that they were assaulted by an officer who was stationed at Fort Jackson, S.C., in the U’s Army Medical Center.
Simpson said in her complaint that the officer told her he was going to “put me in the back of a van and take me to some other place” and then “rape me.”
Simpson’s suit claims that a sergeant told her she could not tell anyone about the alleged assault because “I would not be believed.”
Simpson is seeking monetary damages, including for emotional distress, medical expenses and psychological damages, and is seeking injunctive relief against the soldier and the United States.
Simpson says in the lawsuit that the sexual assault was not reported to the military.
In a statement, the U has said it’s “deeply troubled” by Simpson’s allegations and has taken steps to investigate and take action against the alleged perpetrator.
The Pentagon declined to comment on Simpson’s lawsuit.
